Have plenty of experience on rock ice and in the Alps and just want to keep enjoying good days out on the hill with a preference for mountain days. Self employed so available to climb mid week when its a bit quieter as this also lets me spend time with the family at weekends.
Best Climbing Experience
Climbing Minus One Buttress on the Ben as my fist Mountain HVS at age 17. After that I have too many good days to recount but anything where I pushed the boundaries either with the grades or the weather remains in my memory plus the Hornli in 6 hrs 15 mins round trip after only three days acclimatising and at age 54 when I should be slowing down was a revelation that regular training still works wonders.
